Dr. Stanley Roy Steinbach
Dr. Stanley Roy Steinbach, a retired internist, died of a stroke May 22 at Gilchrist Hospice Care. The Pikesville resident was 89.
Born in Baltimore and raised on East Baltimore Street, he attended the Talmud Torah, a Hebrew school, and was a 1938 City College graduate.
He earned a bachelor's degree from the Johns Hopkins University and a medical degree from the University of Maryland. He was a captain in the Army Medical Corps and did an internship at Sinai Hospital, a residency at Fort Howard Veterans Hospital and was chief resident at the old Lutheran Hospital in West Baltimore from 1950 to 1951.
Family members described Dr. Steinbach as a "medical detective" who was able to make diagnoses that had eluded other practitioners. He practiced for nearly 50 years and had offices on Dolfield Avenue, Slade Avenue and later in Owings Mills.
"He was known to be an astute internist," said a friend, Dr. Irving D. Wolfe, a dermatologist. "He was well-respected and witty."
He enjoyed classical music, photography, opera and bridge, and was a member of the Explorers Club, a group devoted to travel. He also enjoyed playing tennis.
Services were May 23.
Survivors include his wife of 67 years, the former Florine Schwartzman; a son, Steven Steinbach of Boulder, Colo.; two daughters, Sandra Neborsky of San Diego and Barbara Gaile "B.G." Munford of Shrewsbury, Pa.; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
